    I'm at 37 years and counting, but I'm a young pup compared to some around here.

      Wait til they put out a compendium of posts from this board. There'll be an entire volume dedicated to you alone!
      Take good care of yourself.

        There are about 300,000 posts extent on this site now, so 1 out of 16 is mine. :shock: (in the Quality vs. Quantity debate, it's obvious which way I went :roll: ) I figure if they have a 'Best of' compilation with, let's say, 100 posts in it, I should easily be able to get ONE of mine in there. The trouble is that that darned Squackee character will have about half of them, leaving us poor slobs to scramble for the few remaining spots.

          May 1976 for me, with a couple of brief breaks when I did not renew in time.

              We had a thread on this exact same subject about a year ago. I am too lazy to pull it up, but I will post again here on this thread that my subscription started in October 1958..... 48+ long years ago. I was 15.

                And I will repeat the original subscription records disappeared (or weren't kept) when I was still in junior high (or maybe even elementary school), so nobody has any idea how many are left from the '40s or '50s.

                  I go back to about October 1957, and remember getting a brief letter from one of the Nelsons (Bert or Cordner, I don't remember) thanking me for subscribing.

                  A few years later I passed up a lifetime subscription offer at $100 - Seemed like a lot of money then.

                      He wrote "extent" instead of "extant"? Maybe he didn't take English either.

                            That depends on how tall you are.

                              Ive only been growing for 90 days. Here's a hint.

                              Im shorter than an indoor spike.
                              Im shorter than the life expectancy of a six pack in GH's fridge.
                              Im shorter than Nuts succesful highjump last year.
                              Im shorter than Eldys temper with naysayers
                              Im shorter than Texas's list of subject matters
                              And lastly im shorter than Shorter (i think he's 5'10?)
                              phsstt!
